AZANS and EUROCONTROL met in the framework of World ATM Congress 2019

March 13, 2019, Madrid - A meeting within the framework of world ATM Congress 2019 in Madrid was held between representatives of “Azeraeronavigation” Air Traffic Control Department (AZANS) and delegation of EUROCONTROL, headed by Joe Sultana, Director of Airspace Management Center in Europe (Network Manager Operations Centre – NMOC).

Issues were raised about further cooperation between EUROCONTROL and AZANS, as well as the role of Azerbaijan as a strategic partner of EUROCONTROL and a connecting hub in the planning of air traffic flows.

The necessity of signing the agreement between AZANS and EUROCONTROL for the use of Airspace Efficiency, Strategy and Development Center (ASEC) as a regional facilitation center in the planning of air traffic flows in case of unforeseen circumstances in air traffic was noted at the meeting.

This issue became more topical after the events on the border of Pakistan and India on February 27-28, 2019, when Pakistan closed its airspace. During this period, the need for efficient air traffic flow management has greatly increased.

World ATM Congress is the world's largest international air traffic management exhibition and conference attracting about 10.000 people each year.

“Azeraeronavigation” Air Traffic Control Department (AZANS) under “Azerbaijan Airlines” provides safety of flights in the Republic of Azerbaijan's airspace. During the daily period AZANS supports more than 500 flights, 300 of which are transit flights over Azerbaijan.

EUROCONTROL is an intergovernmental organization with 41 Member States and 2 States with special agreements. Together with its partners, EUROCONTROL intends to create a Single European Sky, ensuring the efficiency of air traffic.
